How do you know if you need the services of an expert Registered Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapy is not only required after a surgery or injury. You require physiotherapy to maintain and promote your physical and musculo-skeletal health. Over the course of the day, different activities, movements and maneuvers pose undue strain on the muscles, bones, ligaments and tissues. However, physiotherapy can help treat, manage and prevent damage to your body, while promoting health and well being
You especially require the services of a physiotherapist if:
-You are an athlete or involved in any regular form of strenuous physical activity:
Athletes are more at risk of tissue damage or injury due to their highly- dynamic lifestyle. To assist in a speedy return to play following an injury, athletes should seek Physiotherapy promptly following an injury. In addition, Physiotherapy exercises also helps in development of small muscle and tendon fibers that are generally ignored with traditional gym work-outs (which often target large group of muscles).
-If you are recovering from surgery/ injury or accident:
Injuries induce a state of inflammation, swelling and edema that slow down the healing process. Following an injury or surgical procedure most health professionals agree that you should avoid unsupervised physical activity because of the increased risk of damaging your body. Instead Physiotherapy exercises should be performed safely under supervision of a licensed and Registered Physiotherapist.
Physiotherapists are particularly skilled at prescribing therapeutic exercises because of their extensive medical and anatomical knowledge. Our physiotherapists will develop exercises that aid the tissue remodeling process and improve range of motion without interrupting the healing process or causing long-term tissue damage.
-If you are dealing with chronic pain or discomfort that is affecting the quality of your life:
Pain- killers or surgery is not an effective long term solution for pain. For effective results that target the root cause of your pain or injury, consult a registered physiotherapist who will work with you to develop a treatment plan without the need for medication.
Let’s face it, working long hours at a job that keeps us sedentary for most of the day, for instance at a computer, takes a toll on our back, hip, neck, arm and pretty well our entire body . Physiotherapy is a useful and holistic source of relaxation, relieving anxiety and work- related stress and provides long term relief of pain and symptoms.
